Hello everyone! Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
The top today is: Outside the Comfort Zone (recent books I’ve enjoyed)
So I pretty much stick to reading books in my comfort zone since that’s pretty wide open I don’t have much there. However, I do find that I read a lot of fantasy/sci-fi/dystopian/etc type books and then have bouts were I randomly read a contemporary. I love contemporary but as I reflect back I don’t read nearly as many and since I’ve got a few of those in my sights I’m going to pick some recent contemporary stories that have made me want to read more!
You Were Here by Cori McCarthy- I finished this just this past Sunday and plan to review it Thursday but I flew through it and really enjoyed the story.
Asleep (review) by Krystal Wade- So this is a type of retelling and a psychological mind play and not the whimsical type of contemporary but it was so good!
Outspoken (review) by Lora Richardson- This was a surprise find for me and I really enjoyed how sweet and uplifting it was.
This Song Will Save Your Life (review) by Leila Sales- I had this book for a while before finally picking it up and it was both sad and happy and filled with some great music.
Eleanor & Park (review) by Rainbow Rowell- It’s Rainbow do I need to say more? I could have easily picked Fangirl or Attachments as well but this was the most recent read.
Since You’ve Been Gone (review) by Morgan Matson- This title made me think about friendships and also breaking out of ones comfort zone which fits with the theme ;)
Every Day (review) by David Levithan- This book really got to me and made me think about the way we see the world.
Anna and the French Kiss (review) / Lola and the Boy NextDoor (review)/ Isla and the Happily Ever After (review) by Stephanie Perkins- These books were just so sweet and amazing and they just hit me in my happy place!
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger (review)- I really enjoyed this book and hated how the movie took all the things I loved about it and turned them on their head. I liked that she didn’t fall to ‘oh unduff me please’ attitude.
So those are some contemporary books that have made me want to read more of. Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below. Which would you recommend so I know which ones to get first? Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!
